TB MAC Request for Applications – Funding summary

Below is a summary of the grants advertised by RfA and awarded by TB MAC from the 1st of February 2013 to the 1st of January 2016.

Reviewing procedure

Oversight by TB MAC Advisory Panel. Each application was reviewed by 3 independent reviewers (with no detected conflict of interest with any of the applicants). One TB modeller, one non-TB modeller and one policy reviewer. Each of the pre-declared criteria were scored, summed and used to rank the applications within each reviewer. The overall ranks from the three reviewers were then averaged to give an overall rank across all applications. The top ranking applications were awarded until available funding was exhausted.
